It truly is the most wonderful time of the year. From family gatherings to joyful music to holiday lights, the season is filled with many reasons to smile! To make your hectic holiday season a little easier, we have found four local Fuquay-Varina holiday light shows for you to visit this year! Some are free and some cost an entry fee, please plan accordingly!

Holland Road Lights is a unique experience. The owners have put together a helpful tips list (which I have included below) to ensure you do not miss out!  

Located at the corner of Holland Road and Powell Drive in Fuquay Varina - come visit the light show!! Runs daily from dusk to 10:30.

409 Holland Rd, Fuquay Varina
A few notes for visitors:
1. We have music on a small speaker, as well as broadcasting on FM 90.9. Feel free to pull over and roll your windows down on Holland Rd or Powell Drive and get your car radio blasting!
2. A good driving approach since we have the show in our backyard as well this year is to enter Powell Drive from England Avenue and then make a right on Holland. Please view from outside the picket fence or the end of our driveway - there are wires everywhere inside the fence and it’s a trip hazard. You can view from your car or feel free to get out and dance!
3. We will be having a toy and food drive drive this year to benefit local kids in need of some Christmas cheer, it will be going to a local charity who will distribute to needy kids as well as the local food bank. If you feel led to give, we have a rubbermaid tote at the end of our driveway that you can leave something in. Please make sure the lid is sealed tight so everything stays dry.
4. We have had several people ask about donating to our light show itself. While we do this for the community at no charge, it does take over 40 hours of setup and prep and usually a few hundred dollars of new material every year. Should you wish to donate, our Venmo is @Brent-Deitrich and Cash app is $brengamgee - Its not expected but always appreciated!

We hope you enjoy our light show, and Merry Christmas!

Naylor Farm Lights - $16/entry

Admission includes HAYRIDE, VISIT WITH SANTA, PETTING ZOO, SLIDES, & INFLATABLES! Shop inside their gift shop for local goodies - candy, jams, produce, and so much more!
